KIA Tigers coach Kim Jong-guk didn’t ask for much. I strongly expressed my will to give the two batters who have finally put down the pressure a little more time.
Coach Kim expressed 먹튀검증his satisfaction with the April performance, which ended with five consecutive victories ahead of the game against Lotte Giants in Gwangju on the 2nd. KIA fell to the bottom (10th place) at one point in mid-April after losing 5 games in a row, but at the end of April, it won 5 games in a row and finished the first month with a record of 12 wins and 11 losses.
Coach Kim said, “At the beginning of the season after the opening, I felt like I wasn’t prepared for something. However, the players changed after three consecutive matches against the Gwangju Samsung Lions on the 21st and 23rd. He did well even in difficult situations.” At that time, KIA achieved its first sweep of the season by sweeping Samsung and 3 consecutive weekend games.
When asked about his goals for May, coach Kim said, “First of all, we have to endure with a win rate of 50% or more. The players who are now are doing very well, but if the injured players return, wouldn’t it be possible to see a little more game at that time?” For the KIA, outfielder Na Seong-beom, the main player, is currently out of the first team due to a calf injury and infielder Kim Do-young due to a toe injury.
He also praised Hwang Dae-in and Socrates Brito, who hit home runs in three consecutive matches against the LG Twins on April 28-30. Manager Kim said, “The two batters hit home runs one by one and played their part in the center line.” He continued, “I hope you will continue to do one by one in the future. Rather than expecting a hit every at-bat, I want to show the ability to hit something big when a chance comes.”
